Welcome Mason Lang Heart Hero
Meet Mason- He looks like any normal boy, but what you can't see is that he was born with a complex congenital heart defect called Hypo-plastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). Mason has had 5 life saving surgeries by the time he was 4 years old. His first surgery was inutero called a Balloon Vaulpatsty done in Boston, he was the 110th procedure ever done. His first Open Heart Surgery (OHS) was at 5 days old called the Norwood, at 7 days old his stomach had to be repaired, his second was at 3 months old called the Bi Directional Glenn, and his 3 OHS surgery was at 4 years old called the Fontan. During this procedure he suffered 2 watershed strokes and lost the ability to walk, sit up or feed himself. Through great treatments, physcial therapy Mason has regained all of his walking ability and runs around like any normal child. However we need your help in raising funds for research to ensure that he continues to thrive because of better treatment discoveries, and new meds that may not exists. PLease consider making a donation.
